Thanks Rick, my problem was I was debugging and watching for log
outputs of an app with tail -f, and my output was getting lost in the
dictionary attack logs.
I've since found an easier way to stop this problem for debugging
processes. I establish all the terminal sessions I need over SSH, and
from one of them stop SSHD, and it doesn't kill my open sessions.
